 RC72-27B Grease nipple size

I had a broken grease nipple on the right side belt pulley of my mower deck, the threads are chewed a bit, but would probably rethread if cleaned out with the proper size tap first, AND provided I could even find the right grease nipple size with which to replace it.

Exploded parts views are not free apparently, and a search for the correct size, or part number has proved fruitless.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated, I'm developing elephant grass!

Bring one of the zerks to an auto-supply store, and buy a box of them. You might find that the 45- or 90-degree version is more convenient in some locations. Check you have the right wrench, likely something like a 7mm.

Zerks can get plugged, so it's good to replace them every decade or so -- unless you're lubing every few days or you can see the old grease being pushed out. With a spindle you can't tell if grease is going in, so I'd replace them all.

auerbach, your last line is why I only grease spindles with hand grease gun as you can tell if it is pushing grease or not while my air powered you can not.

I only have a manual grease gun with a flex hose extension that I have had since I was in college, I have a compressor, is the air powered grease gun a big benefit or a nuisance for occasional use?

 RC72-27B Grease nipple size

My Dad had an air powered grease gun when he ran the gas station, the grease was in a sort of metal keg like about 15 gallon, maybe. I don't know if it had more pressure than a hand gun or if it was just more convenient than a hand gun.
Some of the neighbor farmers have the new battery powered hand grease guns, I've never used one of those either. I still use the regular old hand lever powered gun with a rubber hose. I don't know how much pressure one of those can produce, but I'd think more than we realize.

Pros and cons with both.

With manual, especially with a flex hose, you need one hand to hold the coupler onto the zerk, another to hold the gun, and a third to operate the handle. With air, two hands is enough.

As KT says, with manual you have a better feel for the grease going in (and whether the gun's empty).

 RC72-27B Grease nipple size

Dennis I like the air powered one when greasing a lot on bearings the grease can be seen coming out of. Sealed bearings I don't as at least mine (a Sears gun not sure who makes it) makes the same pumping sound regardless if pumping grease or not. Also some bearings are to have such as 3 pumps and the control is not there with the air gun. There are also the battery models that many in the field use. The top of the line is suppose to be the Lincoln brand but the last I looked they begin about $100 which was about 4 years back. I certain can grease much faster with the air gun. Of course there is the hose but also you have one hand to pull trigger and the other to place the flexible hose (what I use on all both types of guns). I don't get as greasy using the air gun due to not having near as much issue with it popping off of the fitting or having to hold the hose at times and lay the hand gun on what is being greased to pump it.

As a side note found best storage for grease guns for my shop to be a large plastic bucket (maybe 5 gallon) as I hang them on the side with the gun inside the bucket. Any drips are in the bucket and not on the floor.

If you look into the end of most grease gun hose/pipe tips you see three little gripper dodads that clamp onto the zerk when you are usng it. They do after lots of use get weak and just don't stay on anymore without holding them.
Someone makes a tip with four of five little gripper dodads that hang on lots tighter. I had some once but probably couldn't find them now.

Hmmmmm that's interesting Hardwood mine is ancient, and I never thought of them wearing out as I have hold it on the zerks most of the time!

Thanks!
